Modern Vintage Seaside in a Nantucket House...

Want a nautical theme without the usual beach kitsch... Well here's a modern vintage seaside themed home that echoes the style of their beautiful timber boat.
Gorgeous climbing white roses over the weathered timber shingle facade make for simple romance and easy care gardening on this seaside home in Nantucket.

Vintage oil paintings of tall ships and upholstery & cushions in a soft ticking stripe set the scene.

Fresh & Light - Seaside Bright. Painted blue floors, with white built in window seats - finished in the style of furniture found on the owner's boat.

A different approach to the seaside using nautical & sailing influences in the guest bathroom - decorated with vintage Nautical flags, hand towels embroidered with 5 point stars, a white bath towel with a blue print of a scaled up fish, an oil painting of a ship - against a back drop of painted white timber panelling.
The timber furniture stain through the living room was matched back to the owner's timber boat.
